My Fab Followers

Evening all - a couple of things.

 Hi there, hope you've all had a great Mother's day if you're here in the UK.  We went out for a drive to the Craft Barn and my girlies treated me to a few goodies!! We then went and had lunch out together.  Very nice, shame Harry couldn't  be home but he did call for a chat! 
I made this card for the challenge at Crafts and Me which wants to see yellow which is not my first choice of colour but love these Crate Paper papers that I got from Crafty Emmas so couldn't wait to use them.   I also followed the latest sketch at Sketch Saturday so am entering it there.

I've also been meaning to give a shout out for my fab Cyber sister, Laura, who has just opened her very own craft shop on line, The Artful Splodger.  She sells lots of fab stuff for art journalling, card making and scrapping.  The funny thing is, I've chatted to Laura for a few years now in forums and blogland and we were once in the same craft shop at the same time and didn't know it!!  Met her since then at a craft show, and she is a lovely lady so hope you can go and give her new venture a bit of support!!  And you get 10% off your first order!! And she has some scrummy candy up for grabs:

Right, just gonna catch up with a few blogs before bed and the dreaded Monday morning!!
